in parts of connecticut and rhode island. so this is going to be plowable, shovelable snow early in the morning as this low pressure center works its way up across new england. it is getting closer to the coast than the original path indicated, because of the westward track we are looking for heavier bands of snow as far north as coastal maine, you are likely to see accumulations of up to a foot of snow by sunday morning. tracking the low, one of the things it will do is bomb out and what that means is as it's off shore, the low pressure center will deepen and strengthen tonight, that will enhance the winds and increase the snowfall rates. meaning tonight into parts of massachusetts, you will be seeing the snow come down one to two inches per hour. that will limit visibility and make travel treacherous to the overnight and early morning hours. by the time we get to sunday morning, the snow moves off the coast of maine. we will see the heavy snow with on the border of canada. it's looking to be a short storm, but a big burst of snow. right in the region, south of boston. it's a go

picture shows we still have lighter snow falling in new york city, northern new jersey, connecticut and into massachusetts. but that rain is kind of sweeping up into nas kaw county in long island and suffolk and it will come down heavy and hard. snowfall totals 3 to 5 inches across parts of pennsylvania with a little bit of more intensity more towards the center of the state. let's zoom into massachusetts, 4 to 8 inches. expect some higher amounts in this region here towards areas of -- sections of connecticut and into much of rhode island. snow across the entire state. and then you see the winter storm warnings extend to coastal maine. we could see up to a foot of snow into areas of coastal new hampshire and maine especially towards late tonight, early tomorrow. let's time it out for you. notice saturday night at 11:00, storm will be intense. we're expecting brutal winds for much of new england. you can see a little bit of mix in terms of precipitation for the cape and the islands. overall these areas you see in brighter white where we're expecting some of the more intense snowfall

senator from connecticut, my dear friend, senator joe lieberman. when joe lieberman announced early last year that he would not seek reelection to the senate, he called himself a lucky guy for having had the opportunity to serve his state and his country. i would contend that it is we in this chamber and the people throughout connecticut and across our nation who are the ones who are truly fortunate, for joe lieberman's life long commitment to public service, including his 24 years here in the senate. for more than a decade it has been my privilege to serve with joe as the leaders of the senate homeland security and governmental affairs committee. regardless of who has been chairman and who has been ranking member, ours has been a partnership. and indeed, mr. president, i'll never forget when i was losing the chairmanship because of the change in control, joe leaning over to me and saying "don't worry, susan. all that will change is that you'll pass me the gavel." it was typical of his thoughtfulness and generosity. and it is not coincidental, mr. president, that ours is the only committ
, westport, connecticut. my favorite senator. [laughter] >> that's why i called on him. >> pretty good. >> i think that a couple lessons have been learned over the last ten years and maybe in the last five years and not the least of which is elections don't mean democracy. and i think i wonder if there are people in this world who just don't want democracy, and is that necessarily a bad thing in particular parts of the world? and how do we, in the u.s., respond to that if that, if what i posture is possible? >> well, it's great to see you, ken, thanks. so generally speaking, i would say from what i've observed people do want democracy. they may settle in with dictatorship for a while, but ultimately there's a natural human yearning for freedom. and opportunity. economic opportunity. i went in with john mccain to egypt and tunisia within a month after the arab spring uprisings, i was really quite fascinated to talk to the people who led both of those revolutions. and one point that struck me was that they were motivated as much by a feeling of economic outrage as they were by their desire for
